In light of the fact that an increasing number of Americans are questioning his faith, President Obama has apparently been told by his advisors to ratchet up the Jesus talk. So at a staged event in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Obama complied by responding to a question about why he became a Christian.
One has to wonder whether such an answer was really what his advisors wanted. After all, who would ever suggest that the president use the biblical phrase “being my brothers’ keeper,” when his actual half-brother (blood-related) resides in a shack in Kenya?
If I may be so bold, I think this strained proclamation of faith by the president is far more about a Machiavellian manipulation of the masses (trying to convince people he’s something that he’s not) than it is about a devotion to the teachings of Christ. In other words, I call bull.
